Hardware News   Hardware News : New drivers for FastATA 1200 MK-III controllers
   posted by DJS on 11-Jan-2008 17:03:52 (2722 reads)
ELBOX COMPUTER has released today the NEW drivers for FastATA 1200 MK-III controllers. New software is available free of charge for all registered users of FastATA 1200 MK-III controllers.

The update includes:
• ATA3.driver ver.8.8
• ATA3Prefs ver.8.6
• AllegroCDFS ver.3.5


Changes:
ATA3.driver ver.8.8
- support of PIO3, PIO4 and PIO5 modes under OS4 added
- autobooting from CD enabled

ATA3Prefs ver.8.6
- NOSPLIT mode as a default
- RESIDENT mode as a default

If you own an older FastATA controller (Lite, MK-I, GOLD or MK-II) and you are resident of the European Union, you can upgrade it now with the newest FastATA 1200 MK-III in the FastATA Trade-Up Program receiving 40 EUR mail-in rebate.

If you want to take advantage of the IDE Trade-Up Program but you are not an EU resident, contact Elbox Sales Department for a customised offer.

FastATA MK-III controllers in the FastATA Trade-Up Program are covered by the New Year FREE SHIPPING offer, which is valid till 14 January.


Info on the current software versions is available in the DOWNLOADS | FastATA section.

Sound like a really nice offer for ELBOX customers, and really nice way to get more out of BlizzardPPC / AmigaOS4.

Probably just as well you don't, then, because they are for A1200

Best regards,

@NutsAboutAmiga

That's exactly what I did, except for the fact i no longer have the "serial number" (so to say)... I hope they send me the software though.

@Dragster

In that case you find the S/N in your outbox of simple-mail or yam.

Write it down and stick it on the CD-cover so you don't lose it again.

Am I the only one still waiting to get the driver update?

I guess its time to resend my request for the driver update as I only have version 8.0, and I can't get the no split mode to work.

edit: resending my update request worked I now have the updated drivers.
Time to go try them.
